Dear Highwaymen   ****  The Captain's Corner ****

Congratulations to Keith Doran and Martin Ruggles for winning our Winter Pairs, let’s hope this is the last time this final is played in late July.

On Thursday we had 73 players who turned out for the Stableford qualifier, almost twice as many as our pre-lockdown levels.  This larger than usual field added a little extra money to the prize pot and the section’s funds. The results are on our website as usual and congratulations to all the winners.

One of the cornerstones of The Highwaymen is its sociability, built up through our roll-up golf that mixes everyone up every week. Many of us have found numerous new friendships through this activity. Now that we can no longer gather in numbers at the club on Thursday mornings to book into our competitions, it has presented us with a new challenge for us to overcome.

Fortunately, we have clever committee members in the likes of Keith Doran and Bill McIntosh that have come up with a method of online booking into our competitions that will generate random playing partners within specific time zones. To book into most of our future competitions you will do this via the “Future Competitions” section of the club’s “Handicap Master”. This will open 11 days in advance on Mondays at 3 p.m. There you will now book your entry by selecting your preferred time zone to play. An automated email confirming your exact tee time will be sent to you no later a day before the date of the competition.

The first competition that will adopt this method will be The Elliott Cup Handicap Qualifying Stableford on the 6th of August. This will predominately be going out in 4 balls to generate sufficient tee times to meet the current demand.

Speed of play becomes critical in this format. Please play ready golf, pick up if you cannot score and keep up with the group in front. If you fall behind you should always let a waiting group through.

At some point and especially when the weather gets less predictable, we will try and find a way again to accommodate at the back of the field those that wish to only play 9 holes.
